My poem, jula (dyula), as this vehicular Mandingo language that has spread with the merchants in different countries, will also travel in Africa, I am sure as much that the African girl that I saw in my dream is pretty. This Niger-Congolese language of Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, especially, but also of Mali, Ghana and Guinea has 21 million speakers.

Ivory Coast is a country with a young population spread unevenly on its territory, the southwest is almost empty and the Abidjan region is very densely populated. There are more than 60 ethnic groups divided into 4 major groups: the Krou group in the S.O., the mande group to the N.O, the voltaic group in the N.E, and the Akan group in the southern quarter. This diversity is accentuated by the presence of foreign populations. It is a rich country with, coffee, cocoa, palm, pineapple, wood, fishing and oil.
